Ridge Hughbanks Phones Home- Talking with Ron Hays About His National FFA Officer Experience and National Ag Day


On National Ag Day, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with National FFA Officer Ridge Hughbanks from the the Alva, Oklahoma FFA Chapter. Hughbanks is in Washington where the National FFA Officer team is participating with other ag organizations in the celebration of National Ag Day.

Hughbanks says his first three months of serving as a National officer has been non stop- and he says that he has been able to use his production agricultural roots in multiple meetings- "you know, I'm meeting with Microsoft and getting to talk about rural broadband as we increase opportunities for students in those dead areas that might not have access to rural internet and telecommunications and then in the next meeting- you are meeting with American Farm Bureau and you are talking about the pertinence of agricultural education in the classroom- knowing what production ag looks like- where your food comes from, but also being able to talk about the other specialty areas and niche areas that farmers find themselves in trying to turn a dollar."

Hughbanks says his roots in rural Oklahoma have helped him be a better National Officer and that he has really enjoyed the interaction with both ag industry and organization leaders- but also with a wide variety of FFA members in local chapters.
